Calligraphy for your wedding, from me at By Moon & Tide

Here’s a few photos to show you what I do as a wedding calligrapher!

When I’m not writing English Wedding, I write calligraphy for weddings. I help couples with everything from invitations to place name cards to table plans, wedding signs and more!

You’ll find me at By Moon & Tide and @bymoonandtide on social 🙂

I adore working with hand torn papers, and this was one of my favourite projects, captured beautifully by Nicole Colwell Photography and styled by the fabulous Lily & Sage. It was featured in a stunning photoshoot on Wedding Sparrow.

For a modern and affordable wedding stationery look, I can create an invitation suite with playful modern calligraphy fonts and elegant floral arrangements. This was for Natalie & Bradley, and was beautifully styled and photographed by the amazing Sheryl at Oobaloos Photography in Cheltenham (check out Sheryl Isabella Photography on Facebook!).

Calligraphy on sea glass UK

Last but absolutely not least – if you’re having a coast or beach wedding theme, you’ll love this look! The tiny piece of sea glass was handwritten in white ink for a photoshoot with Lucy Davenport Photography, styled by Coco & Kat and featured on Coco Wedding Venues. I’m not actually a fan of sea glass (there shouldn’t be glass in the sea!) but it looks ever so pretty. And that plate! Those flowers!
